What an elegant scarecrow! It almost looks like Queen Elizabeth. All she needs is a purse....
Yes, I see the resemblance in the hat! Relayed your compliment to Norma.
A royal scarecrow indeed. All the purple streaming parts should keep critters at bay.
We hope so. Has it worked for England?
Beautiful color for the scarecrow.
Thanks! Norma is a colorful gardener.
Lovely poem for a lovely scarecrow. I wonder, though, if the scarecrow is more inviting than scary.
Good question, Robyn. The squirrels are indifferent to my presence so long as they're in the plum and walnut trees. Cottontail doesn't flee so much as appear to suddenly remember another appointment. These creatures have little to fear from the scarecrow and know it.
Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE Norma's scarecrow!!!There is something rather ghostly and Victorian about it...possibly all the floaty purple and the hat.I bet it looks really atmospheric at dusk! :))
Thanks Ygraine! I'll pass your lovely compliment on to Norma.
Oh! I missed this before! What a stunning scarecrow, and why has this possibility never crossed my mind before? Not that we need a scarecrow, but just the thought of a beautiful garden person rather than the other kind. Norma has a wonderful idea there and a good eye for bringing it to life.
Norma definitely has flair for the horticulturally dramatic. She wants bunnies and squirrels to behave but not be terrified.
